For most of us, heating and cooling our homes isn’t something we think much about. We push a button or turn a dial to automatically make our houses warmer or cooler, but of course what we don’t see are the heating and cooling systems that needs to be maintained.
Why is it so important to have your furnace and air conditioner professionally checked and serviced regularly?
1. Safety is the most important reason to have your furnace checked yearly and serviced if needed. A furnace inspection can find dangerous carbon monoxide leaks. Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that sickens and even kills homeowners every year.
2. To increase the efficiency of your systems and look for any problems. When everything is working as it should, you’ll save money on your energy bills too. There are several things your service professional will check. They may also be able to give you ideas to help you save energy and run your heating and cooling systems for maximum efficiency.
3. To maintain the best air quality for your home. This is so important, especially if there is anyone in your family with allergies or asthma. Ask your service professional about particular air filters that may be best for maintaining good air quality and how often to change them.
4. To prevent a future breakdown. When you have regular inspections of your heating and cooling systems, you can avoid untimely breakdowns. You don’t want the furnace to quit on the coldest day of the year, especially if it’s a weekend or a holiday. And, almost as bad, is having no air conditioning on a humid 100 degree day.
A reputable and experienced home heating and air conditioning contractor can provide you with peace of mind all year, so you can relax and enjoy your home.
